Florists can cost a bomb – we all know that! Fresh flowers are expensive as it is, and on top of that, you have to pay for the floral arrangements. Bye-bye money! So whether you’re planning a wedding on a budget and want to save a bit on flowers or you’re just really picky about how you want the flower arrangements to look, here are 20 DIY floral arrangements that are super easy, super pretty and will look perfect on your big day!



1. Literally, all you need is small vases, some flower stalks and jute or ribbon to tie them together. It’s simple, it looks unique, it’s pretty and it’ll make for great centrepieces.

2. If you’re going for that table-filled-with-flowers look, then this one is perfect. Buy some small glasses, jars and vases, pick your favourite flowers and just fill up the table with these beauties.

3. These will look great all around the venue. If you’re having a modern boho-chic wedding, then these will fit in with the theme too. Try sticking to a single colour or hues of a solid colour for the best effect!

4. Buy some small, some medium and some tall jars or vases which look the same. Pick your favourite flowers or just make bouquets using the wedding theme colours and place these vases in order of smallest to tallest back to smallest.

5. All you need are some funky vases, glue and glitter. You can bedazzle the vases and just place two to three stems of your choice of flower. Simple, elegant and easy.

6. You’re going to need a few flowers, some fillers, a small jar and a base plate. A wooden base plate looks best when you’re going for a rustic theme, while a glass or metallic base plate will look great for a modern or regal theme.

7. Fake flowers in the vase, water to fill the vase and a floating candle on top. It looks so elegant and we all know how simple it is. These will look equally beautiful, day or night.

8. This one is for the lazy brides who love everything pretty. You just need roses and candles that are in sync with the colour theme and huge wine glasses. Your guests will wonder why they didn’t think of this before!

9. This fishbowl floating floral arrangements make for great centrepieces. All you need to make the flowers afloat is some bubble wrap – place a bit just under the flower. It might be a little time consuming, but it is well worth it!

10. You don’t even need flowers for this one; just some fillers and leaves will do the trick. We think such non-floral floral arrangements look really modern and unique, which is why we love them!

11. You’re going to need a candle stand (or a big vase), a round sponge to replace the candle and lots of flowers. You and your girlfriends can spend a fun day poking the flowers into these balls and creating these beautiful decorations.

12. This floral arrangement will make a great centrepiece as well as overall decor. Just find the perfect box which will act as the base, because that box is going to be the centre of attention. You can maybe get these boxes made based on the wedding palette and colour theme.

13. Decorate tables and the entrance using vases, mini jars and candles. The best thing about this floral arrangement is that you don’t even need to go all out buying flowers, you just need to pick pretty flowers. In this case, placement is key.

14. Want to create that floral hanging effect? You literally just need flowers and ribbon. Notice how one side of the ribbon is tied to the top of the beam where you’re going to hang the flowers and the other side is tied to the flowers. That’s all you need to do.

15. You can also create pretty backgrounds with this DIY hanging arrangement. You’re going to need a wooden stick or even just a metallic pipe, white thread (or the colour of your choice, depending on the background) and a few flowers in full bloom.

16. You see this at so many weddings – and it looks so pretty yet complicated. It’s not! All you have to do is buy or rent glass baubles, fill them up with flowers or petals and hang them with a string!

17. Another lazy hack for the lazy bride. Place a candle in the centre and place flower stalks next to it. Throw in some fillers and creepers for added effect. Minimalistic yet chic – it’ll make for a great table arrangement!

18. You know those embroidery hoops that tailors use? That’s all you need to buy. Then bunch together a floral arrangement – flowers, fillers and leaves, and duct tape it to the hoop. That’s it. These hoops can be hung on the wall, hung from the trees or just hung around the venue.

19. These are great for a boho-chic wedding. Use a solid coloured wine glass so that the sponge doesn’t show! Pick flowers based on personal preferences, colour theme or even random selection! Use these anywhere – centrepieces, tables, entrance or even as bar decor.

20. You can even make these intricate floral arrangements yourself. Choose the main vase or bowl you’re going to use, cut up sponge and place it inside. Start by placing the bigger ferns and leaves, place a few flowers in the centre and keep adding florals till it is filled and the sponge doesn’t show anymore. Easier than it looks, right?
